The combines are rolling in soybean fields near Hillsboro, North Dakota. If the weather cooperates, Joel Thorsrud expects to start harvesting soybeans by mid-week. “It sounds like those soybean yields are variable in the early varieties. As we get into the later varieties, the fields look good. I think we lost some of the top yields when we were in a long, dry spell.” Harvest Hotline is sponsored, in part, by the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.
